We live in a country of diversity and we have more than hundreds of shades of skin colour - some dark, some pale and some fair. Either way, judging someone on the basis of their complexion is simply not okay. Of course, racism is a long-standing social construct that will take us a while to eradicate. But, we millennials love breaking stereotypes at any given day and hour, and there’s no reason why we should take comments on our complexion sitting down quietly. We are beautiful and colour has nothing to do with it.
Fair skin, especially in our country, is the ultimate attribute to have. Even most men tend to look for fair-skinned brides as if that makes them better life partners. And often, comments on one's skin are disguised as funny remarks from friends, families and even as casual comments from strangers and acquaintances, alike. So, the next time someone comments on your complexion, here are 10 kickass comebacks.
Umm… I could get you some help instead!
I'd rather not marry a guy judging me for my complexion, thank you very much.
Thank you, at least I am tasty AF!

Is there any homemade mask to remove stupidity? Well, I thought so!

Well, thank god we’re not friends anymore.
